Golite Tumalo 2010

The Golite Tumalo weighs 288g (size L); stretch Pertex Shield fabric is very breathable and very waterproof; front zip gets external stormflap; pit zip venting. But base pocket access is easily obscured by rucksack belts; no map-sized pockets; hood is very basic compared to others.

The Golite Tumalo uses excellent fabric, superb weight, reasonable price; but other jackets have better features for walkers.
